Re: Re Power Levels Into Satellites



Hello Mike,
               I've been suggesting this for donkey's !!! years ... (12 at 
least) ... in my earlier columns in Oscar News, The Amsat Journal, on 
<http://www.observations.biz/> and on the various satellite reflectors ... 
but so far it's fallen on deaf ears.

See <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eu-amsat/?yguid=188558692>

You'd think this would be in the interest of the editors of the Amsat 
journals ... but obviously not.

I hope your posting generates more response than mine have. Perhaps with the 
demise of FO-29 more people might start to become aware of the problem.
